We are a multidisciplinary innovation studio working with diverse partners to understand sustainability challenges and identify holistic, resilient solutions, and we are committed to training the next generation of leaders.




Complex problems such as climate change and natural resource depletion require us to evolve faster and better than ever before. 

Refined over more than ten years, Foresight Design Initiative's problem solving approach is rooted in an awareness of the inherently interconnected nature of these challenges. We leverage systems thinking and design strategy to understand root causes and forge holistic and resilient solutions.

Our portfolio consists of projects that have sought transformation at all scales, and have often incorporated group facilitation skills, applied research, systems analysis, communication design, and astute strategy development and implementation.

Value Proposition

Foresight Design Initiative offers partners:

  • A holistic approach to better understand the challenge at hand and reveal new opportunities for bigger, better, and faster impact. 
  • Access to a robust network of Chicago's sustainability thought leadership to more quickly leverage broad resources, and initiate productive collaborations. 
  • A neutral perspective driven by values, process, and discovery rather than investment in particular strategies, which means more innovative interventions on entrenched challenges. 
  • An eye on the horizon to generate and integrate leading-edge ideas, research, and practices.
